  • [01] PM: 'Recovery of the economy the great wager'

    ANA-MPA - The recovery of the economy was the year's "great wager", Prime Minister George Papandreou stressed in Parliament on Friday. He asserted that there were now visible signs of this recovery, in comparison with the situation handed over by the previous New Democracy government.

    The prime minister was replying to a question tabled by main opposition ND leader Antonis Samaras.

    Papandreou said that the very high consumer price index was due to the taxation imposed to combat the debt, pointing out that the index had dropped significantly in 2500 mass consumption products in February.

    He also sparked controversy with Samaras when he suggested that the main opposition leader was "stuck in the past" and the defence of former ND premier Costas Karamanlis.

    Samaras, in reply, accused Papandreou of having lost touch with reality and blaming everything on the previous government. "You spoke of the previous prime minister: in you I already see the 'previous' prime minister," he added.
